where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I've been a type 1 for 30 years. And I've always been afraid of highs so I always have lows like 4-5 times a day. I don't feel anything when they happen. I'm trying hard to get back to normal and keep then up now. I want them 100-115. But I think I have a major brain damage. Anyone else?i need help

I think they scared be so bad when I was first told that I messed me up! I was 11 and freaked! Lol I was just at the doc and my blood was 32 and the nurse just stared at me! I'm determined to change but I just feel like I'm loosing my mind

My mind vanishes when I go low too. My sugars are probably consistently in the 20's

This is so dangerous. Are you driving when you're that low? If so you are a hazard to yourself and anyone on the road around you. Your low symptoms should come back if you can avoid being low for 4-6 weeks. Your body has to get used to a normal BG again.

I too have the same problem. You need to keep very accurate records. You must test every 2 hrs. to get back on track. Keep this up for at least 1 mo. and you should be back on track. Keep snacks with you all the time. OJ Juice box, hard candies, pre packaged cheese and crackers etc. Hope this helps. I'm T1 as well.
